Historian Susan James has published articles on Nevada topics for over twenty-five years. James began researching the story of Virginia City's famous prostitute, Julia Bulette, in the early 1980s. In 1998, Nevada Magazine reprinted her 1984 article "Queen of Tarts" in The Historical Nevada Magazine: Outstanding Historical Features From the Pages of Nevada Magazine. Her introduction to "Julia Bulette's Probate Records" appears in Uncovering Nevada's Past: A Primary Source History of the Silver State, published in 2004.

James and her husband, Ron, are co-authors of the book, Castle in the Sky: George Whittell Jr. and the Thunderbird Lodge. She has served since 2003 as the scholar-in-residence for the Fourth Ward School Museum in Virginia City. She is a former University of Nevada, Reno, history lecturer.
